All Blacks look to apply pressure before Irish clash

From Morning Report, 7:36 am on 12 October 2023

The All Blacks are doing their level best to put the pressure on Ireland ahead of their Rugby World Cup quarterfinal clash on Sunday morning.

Ireland are favourites for the match, despite never having made it past the quarterfinal stage at a World Cup - a fact the New Zealanders have been eager to remind them of this week.

And on a 17-match unbeaten run, All Blacks coach Ian Foster says that will add extra pressure on the Irish. Of course, Foster wouldn't necessarily know.

His longest winning streak as All Blacks head coach is just 10 games, back in 2020.
